Eduardo´s background in Operations Research is particularly solid in the application of Linear Programming to process optimization and business planning. His work inludes the development of (1) an economic model for optimal oil extraction in Mexico, (2) the development of a stock and distribution network for a Mexican food manufacturer, (3)development of a model for the optimal allocation of resources in energy research, (4)development of a model for energy supply in Mexico, (5) development of a model for stocking and distribution of grains.

Other applications of OR include the development of a risk model to ascertain the origin and magnitude of uncertainty in the event of a severe accident at Laguna Verde nuclear plant (Mexico), and the optimisation of a process for the solvent fractionation of palm oil.

Part of his work has also been published and/or presented at professional meetings.
